Cardinals got some offense back with Pujols departing.....

Cardinals Agree To Two-Year Deal With Carlos Beltran



The Cardinals and free agent outfielder Carlos Beltran have agreed to terms on a two-year deal, reports Derrick Goold of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch (via Twitter).  The final details of the contract are being worked out, with the only possible snag being that Beltran wants a full no-trade clause, according to Yahoo Sports' Tim Brown (Twitter link).


Beltran, who turns 35 in April, hit .300/.385/.525 in 598 plate appearances for the Mets and Giants in 2011.  It was a solid return to good fitness from Beltran, who was plagued by injuries over the previous two seasons and made only 612 plate appearances combined in 2009-10.

Not a bad aquisition for the Cardinals. Now they need to get the another half to help replace Pujols, Beltran is the other half.

Good pickup for the Cards, and it keeps Beltran away from the Red Sox.
